Leading experts in the didactics of mathematics

All their lives dedicated to mathematics and the teaching of it. All the knowledge and experience can be found within our didactic proposal.

Cecilia Calvo

About Cecilia…

I’m Cecilia Calvo and I was born in Montevideo. I studied Mathematics at the University of the Republic of Uruguay and afterwards I got my doctorate in the Didactics of Mathematics and Experimental Sciences at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). I have written various books about the didactics of mathematics and was one of the authors of the dissemination and didactics blog “Puntmat”. I also work as a teacher on the inter-university Masters in Secondary School Mathematics Teaching. Currently, in addition to supporting a part of the Innovamat proposal, I provide continuous training to teaching staff and teach maths classes at the Instituto-Escuela de Barcelona School.

David Barba

About David…

I’m David Barba and I was born in Barcelona. I am a teacher, professor emeritus in the Didactics of Mathematics and Experimental Sciences Department at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) I have also been the coordinator of the Didactics of Mathematics course and the person in charge of mathematics in the Rosa Sensat Teachers Association. In 1979, I founded and managed l’Escaire, the first magazine about the didactics of mathematics in Catalan. I am one of the creators of the dissemination and didactics blog “Puntmat” and of different books and classroom materials too, such as “El Quinzet” or the DAU collection. Currently, in addition to collaborating on the Innovamat proposal, I provide continuous training to teachers.
